• StarLink relies on thousands of earth-close satellites for Internet access

• Deutsche Telekom works with Eutelsat

• StarLinks satellite internet still in the children's shoes

of the satellite Internet service StarLink by Elon Musks Space company Spacex has now started in Germany. The service of other Internet providers is different in that rather than geostationary satellites, which are ten thousands of kilometers from the earth, is set to numerous small satellites, which are far closer to Earth (circa 550 km). This makes it possible to make it possible, especially people who live in hard-to-reach or rural regions, to enable a quick and reliable internet connection.

Deutsche Telekom boss praises Musks Ideas

like Spacex founder Elon Musk in June, Count StarLink Meanwhile 69,000 users , but until the middle of next year, the tech visionary expects half a million users. The fact that the near-earth technology offers great potential and many advantages over the traditional satellite internet or fiber optic cables has also recognized the Deutsche Telekom . Already at the beginning of this year, the boss of Deutsche Telekom, Timotheus Höttges, said to be a possible partnership over the Handelsblatt in talks with StarLink: "For me, this is a very serious technology. I am a great admirer of Elon Musk and his ideas, "says Höttges. Deutsche Telekom cooperates with Eutelsat

Now it seems that the internet company prefer to make nails with heads with minds: So announced Deutsche Telekom at the beginning of October to meet at the topic of satellite Internet with the French telecommunications company

Eutelsat . Thus, using the satellite Eutelsat Konnect "High Speed ​​Satellite Broadband Internet" should be offered, as companies announced in a press release. Planned is the start of the joint offer for the end of 2021, with already tests in the regions of Germany affected by the floods.

[...] The cooperation with Eutelsat is a perfect complement to our portfolio , This allows us to offer broadband over satellite also in remote areas as well as in regions where we currently have no high-speed connections. "

, too, there are differences to StarLink technology. Thus, the Eutelsat Konnect was put into operation in November 2020 and has a capacity of 75 GBit / s and offers up to 100 Mbps for Internet users. However, the offer does not apply worldwide, but is only available for Germany and 14 other European countries due to the location of the satellite.

StarLink technology grows with each satellite

as it is on the StarLink website, users of the beta version, which can be tried up to date in Germany, with "data rates of 50 Mbps up to 150 Mbps and latencies of 20 MS up to 40 ms ", but that can still vary in the trial phase. The more satellites from StarLink continue to be brought into the Earth Carriage - planned are up to 42,000 - but the speed is likely to improve significantly. Editorial Finanzen.net
